POTD: Died April 15, 1912

From 2016 09 05 Halifax
Today's photo-of-the-day is from Fairview Cemetery in Halifax, Nova Scotia, where 121 victims of the Titanic sinking are buried. It's eerie to see rows of tombstones all etched with the identical death date: April 15, 1912.

Bonus photo after the jump.

There's even one Tombstone marked "J Dawson." In the blockbuster 1997 movie "Titanic," one of the lead characters was Jack Dawson, played by Leonardo DiCaprio. I won't spoil the story. If you want to read about the real J. Dawson, check out the Wikipedia article about the movie.
